Not really sure what you're trying to portray here, unless it's the fact that he still needs his toast cut up. LOL. I'll give that to you. :) I cut my hubby's food into little pieces now that we have a 2 year old. strange how that happens. the angle is good, however I wish that the placemat were just a little straighter. I am curious to know what the thing int he middle of the plate is. I feel like I've been hiding under a rock with all the "different" things I see every day. LIghting is great and I like the placement of everything. good luck in the challenge.

Trying hard here to see the childhood. Perhaps this is a breakfast only children would eat? Sorry, I must have led a sheltered life. ;) Just looks like a grown up setting to me. Clear shot. That's good.

???Title??? Is this referring to the sliced toast, the placemat, I don't get it. This is a beautiful breakfast setting, but must children I know don't eat breakfast like this, even (esp) the boys. (I wasn't allowed coffee until I was 14). It's a very nice pic and if I could see the connection to the challenge, it would be worth a 10, but I just don't get it, sorry, my bad. The best I can go is an 8, good thing for you, I'm in a good mood. 8 Swash

Men never grow up... Too true. So should I be marking down all these photos with men in them? - floyd

what's the point?

Oooh boiled egg and dipping toast... Hey I still eat this regularly and I am not a man!
And I have that same crockery set - I won it in a competition!

For the life of me, I can't relate this to childhood... If I'm missing something here, please feel free to PM me ~ myqyl

This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the challenge.

Eww..what is that on the plate? Looks like a raw brown egg. The camera seems to be a little off to the left. 6.

I hope this isn't what you were like as a child. Where are the heart pankages or egg yolk eyes? This doesn't evoke any memories of childhood for me.
08/26/2002 08:18:00 PM
nope they never do!!

Nice composition, can't seem to find the connection with childhood however.
Sharp picture.

Too neat to be true. This is not really a hurried, unfinished breakfast. I like the idea, but the link with childhood is far-fetched.
08/26/2002 02:55:00 PM
I hope they don't. I love men the way they are. :P......well most of them! Beautiful, composition, color, and good perspective. Dang I'm hungry!!! Score 6 Justine

mmmh... I want a breakfast like that every morning... too bad I'm married to a "carrir" wife. : ) nice photo.

I'm not seeing it........
08/26/2002 09:47:00 AM
good shot and atmosphere, however i can't find unique childhood activity.
08/26/2002 04:54:00 AM
i dont get it.

Men?? 'Real' men don't use pastal colored napkins..... or napkins at all, for that matter! :) I don't quite get the concept here, though.
